media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solu
: good evening. mark sanford is headed for a run-off election for the congressional seat in south carolina. i want kate to see when he runs off for his other election. the president arrived and said shalom which many tea partyers in america say prove he was not born in america. >>> and children will be less educated about all that medicaid they're not receiving. happy birthday spike lee, mr. rogers and 97 years ago today albert einstein first published his theory of relatively and then had to spend the rest of his life saying yeah nice theory, einstein. this isel "viewpoint." [ ♪ music ♪ ] >> john: good evening i'm john fugelsang and this is "viewpoint." thank you for joining us. if you thought that senate democrats were serious really serious about taking on the nra and passing major gun control legislation after the newtown school massacre, well, i hate to disappoint you but "the new york daily news" got it right with this devastating cover page. "shame on u-s on us, indeed. harry reid moved to drop california senator dianne feinstein's proposed assault weapons ban from the
if you would criticize the president, as it would pre-election. >> jon: and more from the sequester fear playbook. >> senate leader harry reid sinks to a new low trying it tie the deaths of the u.s. marines to the sequester cuts. and a new study tells how the political press failed in their mission leading to the election. details next on news watch. tudy by the pew research study for excellence in journalism examines a personal portrayal of candidates in 50 major news outlets over a ten week period. they found 72% of the coverage has been negative for barack obama and 71% has been negative for mitt romney. back in 2008, 57% of media coverage was negative for john mccain and 31% for barack obama. but the real story is where those narratives come from, the study shows, jim, that political journalists are not really investigating, but sort of following the narrative laid out by the campaign. surprised? >> not really. there's a limit to what a reporter watching a candidate through six stops a day. do you want them to step back and say-- maybe you do, but their job and people watch and the n
no excitement anywhere in kentucky for his re-election. it doesn't mean some people aren't going to vote to reelect him but only 17% of the people in kentucky, or voters in kentucky said they would definitely reelect him. only 37% of republicans. that's not a place to be if you're trying to be re-elected for the sixth time. >> michael: not looking good for mitch. let's turn to a more sober topic, the topic of guns. i remember you coming out so poignanty after the days in new town and kentucky. it's not an easy way to talk about guns in kentucky. let's talk about it the way that dianne feinstein did. is it impossible the way she said to fight the nra? >> it's not impossible to fight the nra. the senate made a mistake in bringing the assault weapons ban to the floor first. that's not only the hardest thing of all the ways we can--the proposals we're proposing or talking about for gun safety. it's not only the most difficult to past but it's the one that makes the least difference. first we're talking about background checks and then high capacity magazines and then trafficking weapons. i w
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
relationship. both of them have been recently re-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowl
and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
the election but continues to win policy. also on twitter fred wilder says when did senator reid become the most powerful republican in the united states. i want a real democrat as a majority leader. teamster said sadly, this is true, senator feinstein was against filibuster reform so she is now reaping what she was sown >> bill: she was not there with tom harkin and others. and geoff merkley for oregon who wanted to get rid of that filibuster, but she was on the other side. well, sadly for her. maybe she regrets it now. ron is out in elgin, illinois. hey, ron what do you say? >> normally, i would say good morning, bill. but it's not a good morning. the leaders have failed us again. this issue just irritates me right to the core of my bones. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: we have lost our soul as a nation if 203rd graders gunned down in less doesn't turn this nation to do something about the assault weapon ban, i don't know what will. >> bill: go back to the example of we talked about it, australia australia. right? when they had the brutal massive killing back t
a runnoff election we're told next month. if he pulls through on the republican side and this is interesting, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot
elected? and if so, what's sort of been the response from the community to your position? >> i am elected. i'm in my third term and i've been the sheriff for ten and the response has been overwhelming. in the last 18 hours received over 6, 700 e-mails and out of those only ten have been negative. all the rest have been supportive. >> greta: no doubt in your mind, you're not going to enforce these two laws. >> there's absolutely no doubt in my mind i will not enforce these laws because i can't, i won't, i don't have the desire or the will to do it. >> greta: sheriff, thank you for joining us, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> greta: also tonight the possibility of congress approving an assault weapons ban just got slimmer. senate democratic leaders are now removing the ban from the gun control measure that the senate is set to debate. instead, the assault weapons ban will be offered later as an amendment. and that is according to a sponsor senator dianne feinstein and the senate majority leader, harry reid saying he's concerned for the assault position would block passage of any bill at
mark sanford makes it to the runoff round in the palmetto state's special election. will he make it to the final round? [ lisa ] my name's lisa, and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, or if you develop
them to be free and freely elect and we're not happy-- >> and so we're going to give them-- >> we're not happy with the palestinian's decision to elect hamas, but we want those people to have freedom and them to decide. >> we're giving terrorists money. colonel west, why would we give terrorists money? >> well, i don't think we should be giving terrorists money. i think that that is going back to a chamberlain type of foreign policy appeasement. and originally whsecretary of state kerry went to egypt, wanted to meet with him and he refused to and it was not covered, you had protests in the united states of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and
will do anything necessary to keep his job. he has six democratic senators out for re-election from very difficult states weapons bans an the clips. assault weapons been a gives -- assault weapon ban gives everyone a chance to vote on. it but the clips i bet they pass. >> dana: for those who support the second amendment and don't want to see the rights eroded because of a ill, mentally disturbed person who committed murder. the background check bill is bad. what are you hearing? >> eric: for that portion of gun control the other part is let's crack down on illegal traffics in place. i don't think either one of the clips and the assault weapons ban will pass. i predicted harry reid wouldn't get it on a bill on the senate floor. he has to raise his hand and he is last person to vote on that. there are 11 senators that don't want to jeopardize that. he would lose. he would lose either one of those. >> bob: he would lose on clips. >> it'd make a wager that both amendment fail. >> greg: i hate to use the phrase bigger story, because i banned that. this is what happens when you create law base
the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un
. >> sean: a political point. no, but he's doing things-- >> pursuing an election, and it's very worrisome and hurting americans. >> sean: 2014? >> 2014, hey, folks, that's what -- i don't care what he does when you're looking at him now when the poll ratings are going down. that's his objective. he gambled that he could change the muslim world and the fact is, we have tolerated -- i remember when the members of this administration, members of congress saying the muslim brotherhood they're not bad. they are poison and we're seeing that in egypt and it's a-- you know, you have to make a tough stand. >> sean: liz, you know, when he you say that the israelis are the descendents of pigs and apes, 9/11 truther, this is not hard to figure out and predict. the media got it wrong, the president got it wrong and a few of us here got it right. you being one of them, i was one of them. i don't know where you were. >> it's worse than what pat is saying. i don't think that this president is watching the united states decline for political gain. i think he doesn't mind if the united states declines. i t

and generosity of a victorious president who won the elections, does not have netanyahu threatening him, he can reach out and try to prove to them that he is a real friend and this demonization of him was totally wrong. >> now, according to the polls, and you know better than i whether the polls are accurate reflection, is israelis are suspicious of this president, despite the long-standing ties and generosity on the missile defense system and other security issues, there's a real sense he hasn't shown israel the love. other presidents didn't come in their first term, ronald reagan never came as president, but at the same time they expected him to come, especially after he went to cairo in 2009. can he reach on the floor his head to the israeli people. >> there are three interesting events. king hussein of jordan, almost an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy, definitely is a d saddat. the trick for president obama now, and i think this is exactly what he's trying to do.
it instead of the military it's war that is waged secretly with no expectation that our elected officials will even admit that it's happening and there's no expectation that it will be overseen by congress the way that war is overseen by congress. this isn't armed services. this is intelligence and it's responsible for keeping safe the family jewels, right? one of the interesting d. krfrmgs dynamic. dynamics is that the cia maybe doesn't want this job any more. that although they have been ramped up to become a covert air force not everything is psyched up about it. after petraeus had to resign, the acting director who took over was described in the press as concerned about the overmilitarization of the cia. john brennan who president obama appointed to run the cia in his second term, he told the washington post in october that he too was interested in the cia getting out of the drone business, saying essentially that that is war and not intelligence and as such it should be done by the pentagon and not by the people who are supposed to be our nation's spies. well, that transition, that c
of peeling off of republicans from the party doctrine on this? >> i think it would take several more election cycles to have any kind of shift at the federal level or the rnc platform if we're measuring that way. i think alex is hitting on an important point -- >> sam -- >> did i do that twice? there is a predicate here, which is the court is often used as something that both parties will organize against when they're outraged about positions unchangeable. but at other times we have seen this throughout history, the court becomes a permission structure to make change. the republicans and the democrats both had very poor records on civil rights and over time, particularly with decisions like brown that were, of course, unanimous for many republicans eventually it became a permission structure. that's why the entire caucus starts voting for the voting rights act and other things. it's a checkered history so i don't mean to simplify it. but if the court goes federal here, i do think it would actually take some of this out of the political space, which could be good if you care about human rights
they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about what they just voted on in congress and whether we just avoided one of the cliff slash ceilings clash crisis congress now schedules for us every few weeks and whether the way they avoided this next one is itself important. there's a lot going on in the news. we have a lot ahead. we begin tonight with late breaking and rather surprising news from the democratic leader in the senate, senator harry reid. following two days of angry response from california senator dianne feinstein, she had been very publicly disappointed and angry harry reid was not going move her assault weapons ban to the senate floor as part of the democrats gun reform package. after two days of defiant reaction from senator dianne feinstein and supporters of gun reform and vice president biden made an appearance with mayor michael bloomberg demanding the assault weapons ban gets a vote and neither he or the president will rest until these measure

elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
worse than we were hearing here. two years later the republican party has the best off-year election and we march on to victory. >> because reality changes. a vietnam war going to bed and change people's minds. back in '89 republicans won five of the last six elections and electoral lock on the country. they have five six straight elections and south and west and democrats are done. then bill clinton shows up and, importantly, challenges his own party on stub substance, not process. he says we are brain dead. we have got to change on welfare and let people know we are tough on crime. he is a death penalty democrat. now people are saying the republican party is dead. >> but, charles, two years after bill clinton won said, we changed plolitic forever. my only point is i'm all for the hand wringing. nobody has been more critical of the republican party than myself, but sometimes it just comes down to blocking and tackling. getting the best quarterback and getting guys and women that know how to block and tackle. and this campaign was run horrifically the past year. >> if i can play devi

friendship with israel and realized in washington eternal means until the 2014 election. but there are stakes here and to be fair, i think the president has undergonna real mental, perhaps even emotional shift. as we all know he came to office with a chip on his shoulder against israel. he had that chicago reverend wright background where israel is repressors and arabs were good freedom fighters especially the palestinians and heard in the cairo speech, but for the last four years, our president has been trying to deal with the fractious, often truculent arabs and now the palestinians, even though he is going to the west bank to meet with them tomorrow, the palestinians are complaining that he won't pay homage to the tomb of yasser arafat and i think to an extent our president may have finally realized that, yes, israel is our only friend and ally and by the way, the only truly civilized rule of law democracy in the entire region. and with, as he ed henry made clear, with all of these problems converging, syria, iran, perhaps instability growing in jordan, lebanon in danger of another civil w
